Marshall Plumlee '11 helps Coach K attain 1000th Win
Christ School Greenie and Duke Blue Devil Marshall Plumlee '11 is credited with helping Coach Mike Krzyzewski attain 1,000 wins in NCAA Basketball.
"We were getting our butts kicked most of the game," Krzyzewski told FOX's Gus Johnson. "Then all of a sudden we put Marshall Plumlee in. We haven't used that lineup much. And Marshall and [Jahlil Okafor] together, I don't know, there was a spark."
Krzyewski has been building on his lead over former coach Bob Knight since he surpassed 903 wins in 2011. The next closest coach to Krzyewski is Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim who is at 962 wins.
Marshall has had a great week, including helping win one for coach K and being sworn into the US Army.
Great job, Marshall!

While Marshall was at Christ School, he was a member of the National Honor Society and a Wetmore Scholar.

Greenie Fans Featured on WLOS Game Changer
If you have ever been to a Christ School basketball game, you'll know that the excitement is "like no other experience." Christ School senior guard John Caldwell explains "it's a once in a lifetime thing to do. It's a special thing here. The fans are great!"
Caldwell '15 and his varsity teammates are supported by a massive student section of fans. For each home game, students arrive in themed costumes to cheer for the athletes. Assistant coach Tiger Norman says "it's all a big unit and they support each other."
WLOS agrees: "if the Greenies keep playing as well as they are right now, the student section will without a doubt continue to be one of the most enthusiastic in the mountains."
Since Eric Thorp '01 has stepped in as head basketball coach, the Greenies have won 10 of their 13 games, and are in first place in their conference.
Thank you to all members of the community for your support. Go Greenies!
